Marissa Brand from Cypress, Calif. (Cypress HS), led the Bulldogs to a pair of victories over Idaho and San Jose State and earned the program's first Western Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors since 2004.
In the 3-1 road win at Idaho, Brand paced the Bulldogs with 16 kills and 15 digs for her WAC-leading 12th double-double of the season, her eighth double-double in WAC play.
In a sweep over San Jose State, Brand recorded a match-high 14 kills (4.6 kps) for her 19th double-digit performance in kills this season.
On the week, Brand recorded 30 kills (4.3 kps) on a .297 hitting percentage and had 21 digs (3.0 dps) as Fresno State needed only seven sets to win a pair of WAC matches.
